By DON THOMPSON
Short of cash? How would you
like a loan ?
If you’ve been in school for one
term and have a cumulative GPA
of at least 2.00 you can qualify for
a loan from the University Student
Loan Fund. This fund totals $175,
Two types of loans are made;
emergency and regular loans. Emer
gency loans, making up the largest
number of loans taken out by stu
dents, are for small amounts for a
period' of one month.
Regular loans are for amounts up
to $300 and may be kept up to two
years with the privilege of renewal
if the borrower still needs the
money and still meets the liberal
In October 367 students took out
emergency loans totaling $16,251.
This is a loan average of $45.27 per
students in October. In October of
1949 the total number of borrowers
is nearly the same for the same
month in 1948, Students borrowed
$19,375 by taking out 373 loans at
this time. The average loan was $6
A total of $1,300 was lent to six
students in OctQber. In Octtober of
1§48 four students borrowed $870.
The interest rate for regular loans
is four per cent. The service charge
for emergency loans is 25 cents for
those under $10 and 50 cents for all
loans over this amount.
The University loan fund was
started in 1901. Contributions by
the class of 1904 and various peo
ple throughout the state raise the
total in the fund to $500 in 1909.
Senator R. A. Booth, Eugene, be
came interested in the fund at this
time. Through his efforts a num
ber of other persons made dona
tions. The loan fund also grows
through accumulated interest,gifts,.
No collateral is required to make
loans. An emergency loan may be
made on the strength of the bor
rower’s signature. Regular loans
require the signature of two prop
erty owners in addition to the sig
nature of the student borrower.
Repayment of loans is encour
aged by the University as soon as
the borrower is able to pay. Month
ly installments are sometimes used
by graduates to pay back loans.
